Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93 points
The vines that bore fruit for the 2015 Barolo Riva del Bric are a bit younger in this site compared to those used for the Ginestra. This Barolo is great, but it is without the same complexity you get in the other one. It's a more sensible expression of Nebbiolo, with thick layers of black fruit followed by tar, moist earth and savory tobacco. It shows similar density and thickness of fiber that you get in the Ginestra cru, only the wine's complexity is less articulate and nuanced. Drink it in the medium term after three to 3-5 of bottle aging.

A fresh, expressive version, featuring ripe cherry, plum, licorice, leather, tar and spice aromas and flavors. The sweetness of the ripe fruit is offset by firm, dusty tannins, yet in the end this is balanced and long. Very vibrant. Best from 2023 through 2042.

James Suckling 92 points
Aromas of plums and berries with hints of flowers. Medium body, tight and chewy tannins and a delicious finish. There’s reserve and finesse to the structure. Drink in 2022 and beyond.
